Things have been kind of sad lately. A deep kind of sadness that just sits inside my tummy and at times I cry, but at other times I just feel really, really sad. I think it’s called grief. And I think I’ve been smacked in the face with it a bit lately.
The past two weeks have been tough. I’ve had to farewell two of the most precious ‘older’ women in my life; my beloved and beautiful-spirited, Aunt, and my most treasured and sweet, Nan. (I dare not say ‘elderly’ as I know that they would both give me a clip beside the ear despite the fact that they have about 40 and 50 years on me, respectively.)
